One of the things I find magical and fascinating in the kitchen, even if you and I have been cooking for years, is that there’s always something new to make or a new way to prepare it. I’ve always made this classic focaccia and it’s one of my favorite breads. This time around, I prepared it with a mix of all-purpose and whole-wheat flour to give it a more wholesome toque, and it turned out delicioso. Focaccia is a kind of Italian bread that belongs to a group of flat breads. It’s very easy to make. If you’ve never baked homemade bread, this is the per-fect recipe to get you started.
